thank you, this program! works like a charme!


anyway, using it, lets me think, i have some problems with my eyes 8-)
the font, compared to all other windows, seems blurry.
is there a way to disable this?

keep up the good work!

The blurry-fonted one would be my XUI version, I think, not Mark's original! :-) It's called anti-aliasing, is part of how the WPF framework draws itself, and as far as I can tell, there is no way to turn it off, sorry. Anti-aliasing and clear-type seems to be in fashion at the moment, although I've got to say I'm more in agreement with you that font-fuzzing is not the great step forwards it is made out to be.

thanks for that fast response and the clarification :-)

i originally came from a google search for "cover downloader for foobar", landed at the cover downloader-thead here, installed it and tested it, then, at the end of the thread, there was a new topic, which leads me to the album art downloader, which i downloaded and tested as well, and on sourceforge, where i wanted it to download, i saw the XUI version and now i'm totally confused, *but* have a working program for downloading covers *and* a wonderful crew, which helps here in the forum! :-) thanks for that, too!!

cheers,

AlbumArt Downloader XUI v0.9 Released

It's been a while, I know, but I hope you find this latest release to be worth the wait. I've made some major improvements to performance, particularly when dealing with larger numbers of results, and using the Automatic Full-size Image download options.

I've also finally added a Foobar2000 library browser - to use this you will have to have the Foobar2000 COM Automation Server installed, though.

Another new addition is a persistent preview window. If, instead of holding down the mouse on a thumbnail, you right click on it and select "Preview..." then a new window is opened to preview that result, which will only be closed when you close it, and allows you to zoom and pan around the image.

As requested, there is now a command line parameter for sorting:

CODE
/sort (name|size|source)[+|-]
              Sets the sorting to use for the (/sort size-)
              results.
              May be abbreviated to /o        (/o size-)
              
              The first character may be - to
              indicate descending search, or
              + to indicate ascending. If it
              is omitted, ascending is assumed.
              
              The field to sort by must be one
              of:
               name (may be abbreviated to n) (/o n+)
               size (may be abbreviated to s)
               source (may be abbreviated to o)

Changelog:
  • Added Foobar2000 library browser
  • Added Persistent Preview window (should do the job, dano *)
  • Improved performance of search results thumbnails list (hope this helps, phunkydizco *)
  • Improved handling of larger-than-screen preview popups
  • Fixed Coveralia and Yes24 scripts which had become out of date
  • Updated to version 0.7.5.2 of the MediaInfo tag reading library
  • Added command line parameter for setting the sorting to use for results (as requested, hal9001 *)
  • All sources now limit the results returned to the first 10 by default. Click the ... at the bottom right of a source to adjust or remove this limit for a source
  • Fixed bug where all windows would share a single remembered size, so windows of different types now remember their size independently.
  • Added re-use of existing search window from the command line, if "Open Results in New Window" option is turned off, and there is only one search window currently open, and search terms are passed on the command line. (as requested, hal9001 *)
Download:
I'm moving Album Art Downloader XUI to a new thread. This one is getting a little unwieldy, and not controlling the top post is becoming a hassle (it still links to 0.4!). I hope you'll all join me over here:

Album Art Downloader XUI

Where the first post has, and should always have, download links to the latest version.

Thanks,

Alex

I don't know which version you use, but if it is of the XUI branch, you need .NET 3.5 to run its latest version.

for some reason i cant see any other posts expect for the first one so i dont know if anybody asked this already.

i was able to figure it out a while back but i used album downloader a while back and awesome application love it.
however i was never able to figure out how to make the images save into the directory, i mean i saw this one scrip for a guy that had it in his theme for got his name he used foo_run and i somehow searched out the artist and title from foobar and then saved it into the location where the file is so i dont have to go look for the directory.
his code didnt work for me.

and if i look at your syntax could i use that like that
filepath[albumart.exe] [-ar %artist%] [-al %album] [-p %path]
is it wrong if i would want it to work with foo_run?

Hola again, AAD became an even more awesome tool since I've updated it... smile.gif

I have a feature idea: with AAD it was always a bit tricky to manage albums that had more than one Artist (VA albums) Path pattern is one way to overcome this, but here is another idea: in the browser, there could be a new sorting column: Path - this would show the file path of the element. Elements from the same folder would have no thin white margin on top/bottom as they have by default (= or other non highly visible marking)

I know you don't like methods that assume a certain path structure, but this would have little to no impact on the general feel, and is a great help to everyone who stores files in album folders (95% of users smile.gif )

(And please, even if multi-windowed gui is hardcoded, couldn't you make one parent window to hold all the others? 3-4 open windows of the same app is not a good sight even on high resolution)

Hi Alex,

I noticed that the file browser reads "artist" tag instead of "album artist" tag, which makes it difficult to use with various artist albums. Is this a bug?

works great! do you think you could add a script for last.fm? or another website with a lot of artist images? cause i prefer artist images instead of album covers.

AlbumArt.exe works on x64?

what about this script:
C:\Program Files (x86)\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe
would show if the run component works on x64

what about running this from cmd:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe"
/ar "Beatles" /al "Help" /p "C:\Program Files (x86)\AlbumArtDownloader\covers\Beatles - Help.jpg"
would show if albumart.exe likes cmd parameters on x64

Seems to work perfectly from CMD
